Do not get me wrong, Terrence Howard is a fantastic actor, but he was seriously more tough in Big Momma's House
than in Iron Man
. I hate recasts, but when the successor is a superior actor, it eases the pain. Go ahead, Don Cheadle.
Agree with most of this - Howard's voice when he came in the house looking for Tony was very feminine - "Tony!!, Tony!!" came off very light, and I'm sure most can agree with that.
Cheadle is the better actor, but physically they could have went with Cuba Gooding Jr or Wesley Snipes just as easy I think.
